CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.


One of Gilbert and Sullivan's best-loved comic operettas, Patience wittily satirises the Victorian Aesthetic movement and the rival claims of Art and Man to win a fair lady's hand. Bunthorne the poet is madly adored by a bevy of beautiful maidens (and Lady Jane), who have thrown over their former lovers, the Heavy Dragoon Guards - but Bunthorne only has eyes for his innocent dairymaid, Patience. Matters are complicated when Patience's former boyfriend arrives on the scene and the Guards turn to Art to win back their errant fiancées. Will they succeed? Will anyone every marry Lady Jane? And who will be Bunthorne's bride?

Performers Charlotte Page, Bruce Graham, Giles Davies, Henry Newman, Thora Kerr, Nuala Willis, Jill Pert, Lesley Cox.
